Traditional Usage: Dong quai is often included in herbal combinations for menstruation. From abnormal menstruation, suppressed menstrual flow, dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation), and to uterine bleeding. It’s common to find Dong Quai and Chamomile combined which seems to reduce hot flashes in menopausal women. We have seen combinations of Burdock root, licorice root, motherwort, dong quai, and wild yam root, for reduction in menopausal symptoms. Due to the potential effects on the uterus it’s suggested to not take while pregnant.
Dispensing: The plant varies due to the several types: root extract by decoction ranges from 3 to 15 g/day; when in blends, 75 mg to 500 mg may be taken up to 6 times a day, for less than 6 months.
